Mystery Bag

100% of 100

People with dementia or Alzheimer's love the feel of these smooth wooden shapes. That natural interest leads to a variety of activities that challenge the senses with this classic Montessori activity.

The Mystery Bag consists of ten pairs of wooden shapes including cubes, rectangular cubes, prisms, spheres and egg shapes in a cloth bag. The experience of looking at a piece, interpreting it and then finding its match is very different than simply seeing the object. This activity provides a connection between the two. It stimulates the sense of touch by eliminating distractions and helps with cognitive function through the matching process.

  • Cognitive challenge
  • Helps with dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Sensory stimulation using touch to identify pieces
  • Templates for guidance
  • Full instructions

The person starts exploring the different shapes by placing them on templates and observe that the shapes take different forms depending which face is placed on the template. Once the person is familiar with the shapes we move to activities that involve touch alone. By placing the pieces in the bag and feeling them without seeing the shape, different areas of the brain are stimulated. The instructions detail how to guide the person to explore the pieces.

Suitable For:

A great activity for almost anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's who has the dexterity to handle the pieces.

Package Includes:
  • Mystery bag with ten pairs of wooden pieces in cloth bags
  • Laminated templates for guidance
  • Full instructions

This product is proudly assembled and packaged by the people of The Ark, a community organization dedicated to providing services for persons with special challenges.
